Well sort of, the chinese used black powder not just to blow up things, but due to invigorating effect of nitrate on fire BP was considered to be some kind of elixir. In fact according to some sources BP was inadvertently invented during the search for a medicine to make the then emperor live for ever.I heard that in some cultures, activated charcoal is an aphrodisiac
Thanks!I understand that all of the factory 7.62mm rifles (L42, L39, 762 CONV, Envoy, Enforcer) were milled - even though the L39s were sent out without 7.62mm mags. I suppose they had one jig set up for L42 conversions and a bloke sat there working through a bin full of receivers.
On some receivers you can't see anything, presumably because that particular receiver happened to have been a bit over-cut when it was built as a .303. I find that about 1/3 of .303 No4s will take an Enfield 7.62mm mag without further alteration.
No idea, to be honest. But it's a new barrel and new furniture, and the bolt/carrier are renumbered with an electropencil so I guess Enfield??? No idea who it was done for or for what purpose, or when either. But there's a whole batch of the things on the Euro market.Nice, who did the refurb?
Mine was done by Luxemburg Defence Technologies, new barrel and new bolt carrier. They did about 1000 SLRs, all long since sold.No idea, to be honest.

The civvy proof mark will date from when they were sold off, and is quite modern, so doesn't help us either...
Tsk tsk, exhale when pushing up, inhale when expanding the chest going down (or at the top for a breather, maybe). Well done, you look worryingly similar to the star of the Survive to Fight pamphlet!So I got talked into doing one of those pushup challenge things... So I went a bit OTT and all Cold War on it - including badly-tied puttees for CCF officer style points!
